APC Chieftain describes Delta council election a sham, says DSIEC board members are PDP card carrying members


Chief Ovo Ofigo

WARRI-A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC,  Chief(Hon.) Ovo Ofigo on Wednesday has described the outcome of the last Saturday Delta State council polls conducted by DSICE as a sham, saying that the state Governor Ifeanyi Okowa implanted PDP members in DSIEC to conduct the election in favour of PDP.



Chief Ovo disclosed this today while addressing journalists at the Warri correspondents chapel, said ‘‘We knew from the onset that DSICE, a committee constituted by the governor of the state, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa  cannot conduct transparent, free and fair and credible local Government elections in Delta Sate. The DSIEC board members are all card carrying members of the people democratic party. And they are working at the instruction of their pay master, which is Governor Okowa. What happened Last Saturday is a sham and an embarrassment to democracy’’


Chief Ovo also said that the People’s Democratic Party, PDP may not give its Presidential ticket to former Vice President ,Alhaji Atiku as he placed a curse on the PDP and its agents for the alleged injustice meted on him.

He stated that Atiku Abubakar made the “biggest blunder” for dumping the APC for the PDP.


Chief Ofigo who is also the National Coordinator of Buhari Solidarity Movement, BSM said Atiku Abukar should have remembered former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Nuhu Ribadu who was deceived to join the party but was rubbished and humiliated.

Chief Ofigo who described the PDP as a party that does not believe in the right thing said,”It is not going to be Atiku. I think it is suicidal.”

“Atiku rushed too early to make that mistake. That’s why one Kwankwaso is being careful”.

He placed a curse on the PDP saying “Never in the history of this country will PDP come to the Presidency” in 2019.

The former teacher and bank boss noted the PDP can come to the governorship at the various States stressing that they (PDP) will continue fault in their bid to clinch the Presidency”.

Chief Ofigo said he defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC from the PDP as a result of the injustice meted on him by the party (PDP) during its 2008 National Convention.

According to him,”Prior to the 2008 National Convention, PDP as usual engaged in its zoning formula.”

“Besides other issues of the National Treasurer was a major issue. The National Treasurer position was zoned to the South-South geopolitical zone.”

“The zone subsequently zoned the position to Delta State. I was the sole candidate from Delta State. I was the only person from Delta State who bought the mandatory #100,000 Expression of interest form and filling all the necessary details”

“But after the convention somebody who did not partake in the national convention of the party by buying the mandatory #100,000 Expression of interest form and filling all necessary details and above all who was not a PDP Party member was brought from nowhere to take over from me as the National Treasurer.”

“It is a curse from me on place and this curse will continue to hunt the party.”

Chief Ofigo also placed a curse on a former minister for dampening his spirit and meting out there injustice to him by shortchanging him in a contract his company won.

Chief Ofigo claimed that the former minister subsequently gave out the contract to his cronies at a highly inflated contract sum of almost the figure quoted by his company.

Chief Ofigo claimed he also cursed a young man he had taken time to follow who also short-changed him in a contract his company genuinely won.

“Again, I cursed him for the injustice how meted on me. Again, when some of his Aides started to boast that he would win the gubernatorial primaries and subsequent elections, I told them categorically that he would  Never win and so it was.”
